"I have yet to find a more comprehensive and well presented book on the subject, and at the price it should well be within the reach of just about every tall ship enthusiast. It's an absolute must": if you can't afford it right now, put it at the very top of your Christmas list." -- Tall Ship International, June/July 1997
"With each color photograph on each page, Thad Koza's collection of the world's most majestic sailing vessels will undoubtedly take its place in the librairies of sail aficionados. From old fighting ships like the USS Constitution, to the Russian training ship Sedov, which is the largest sailing vessel afloat, the hardcover book includes scantlings and a description for each of the 150 featured ships" -- Ocean Navigator, May/June 1997
